Nursing: Teaching Awards to Mr. Clark, Dr. Malseed

The School of Nursing's 1996 Teaching Awards were given at Commencement to two whose students rated them, among other things, "stimulating... knowledgeable...accessible, objective and fair." The two are Michael Clark, a clinical lecturer who supervises undergraduates in the care of older adults with acute health problems, and Dr. Zorianna Malseed, an associate professor who teaches anatomy and physiology to undergrads and lectures on special topics in immunology at the graduate level.
Mr. Clark is a staff nurse in the Emergency Department of HUP who received a master of science in nursing degree from Penn's School of Nursing in 1990 and was enrolled in the gerontologic nurse clinician program. His students found he "provides top-quality, valuable learning experiences for students and is an exceptional role model and leader."

Dr. Malseed, who also coordinates the joint major in nutrition offered by Nursing and Arts and Sciences, joined the School of Nursing faculty in 1971 and received the Lindback Award for Distinguished Teaching in 1981. In nominating Dr. Malseed for the 1996 award her students said, "Dr. Malseed's enthusiasm for the subject matter stimulates and challenges her students to explore the material with the same adoration and enthusiasm. As the students progress into the junior clinical, their appreciation for what they learned in anatomy and physiology grows even stronger."
